Elevation 4,520 m
This stage offers a number of beautiful sceneries. You will have beautiful views into the valley where the last camp has been put up and also the glaciated peaks to the South-East. Walking distance is 10 to 11km, the difference in altitude of ascent is 700m, the walking time is 4.5 hours.
You pass the village and there is a steep and steady climb which takes an hour. The pass has several cairns covered with prayer flag. Climb a bit and you can see the mountains like jumolhari, Jitchu Drake etc. Looking back is the pass crossed yesterday and looking the other side is tonight’s campsite. The trail first stays high to the left with some exciting drop offs, then winds gently downhill to camp. Thombu camp is the second highest camp for this trek.
